that occurred at sandy hook elementary school, the cities, states and now president of looking for ways to stem violence what. what took place in connecticut was not the only reason i began working on this legislation. oftentimes it takes a national tragedy to create significant among them and political pressure around the issue of gun violence. but, what is getting missed in these debates is that the reality is that these tragedies associated with gun violence take place every single day in our neighborhoods all across the country. i know all too well what this tragedy looks like. i experienced it every time every time i get a phone call in the middle of the night for the police department alerting me of another violent crime are shooting. families as they grieve. i experience it every time i go to san francisco general hospital to console the victims of gun violence, last year a victim as young as five years old. we continue to address the causes and impact of this senseless gun violence. increasingly involves young adults under the age of 25; often related to disputes over turf and
to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and not only can we share in this tragedy and signal our sympathies to the families as we've done, but we've got to do something more. and this is where i want to make sure i recognize all of the people that are in that effort of doing something ab
of items. first of all regarding the shooting at sandy hook elementary in connecticut. this was an unfathomable event. as a parent it hit so close to home that i am amazed i never imagined it and i have had a pit in my stomach ever since. 20 students, four for teachers and two administrators. i have a first grader. every day 34 americans are murdered with guns during president obama's final four years in office it is estimated that 40,000 americans will be killed with guns, the same amount of people killed in vietnam. says the shooting in arizona which killed six people including a nine-year-old and seriously injured than congresswoman-- as the city we should continue to lead the way to advocate for and pass policies that protect the general well-being of the society. today i am introducing two resolutions, supporting senator dianne feinstein's assault weapon legislation; and a resolution supporting the sandy hook promise, born out of the event that killed those 20 children, four teachers and two other distribution. assault weapons have been used in at least 459
want to state we're not here trying to undermine funding for sandy, needed for sandy. some of the things the house did i think are legitimate in terms of saying let's set aside unrelated matters. it doesn't mean we cast them into the dust bin never to be seen again. it simply means let's let those that are not emergency situations be more carefully examined in terms of whether we need that. and if someone does come to the floor, as senator lee is going to do, is my understanding, and offers a potential offset, let's at least look at that possibility. the debt clock is ticking and ticking ever faster. and it is destroying the hopes and dreams of future generations. and i think we have a moral responsibility to at least be as conscious and effective with dealing with the taxpayers' dollars in terms of how they're spent, whether it's an emergency supplemental related to a disaster or whether it's just a normal appropriation that comes along every year through our appropriations process. we haven't exercised that kind of discipline, and our country is going to pay a very seriou
. the majority leader. mr. reid: we're going to have one more vote tonight. the next vote will be on sandy and matters related to sandy monday night at 5:30. we expect -- i have spoken to the chairman, new chairman of the -- will soon be the chair of the foreign relations committee, and ranking member corker. we're going to have a vote after the business meeting sometime on tuesday on the new secretary of state. the presiding officer: the question is on senate resolution 16. are the yeas and nays requested? the yeas and nays have been requested. is there a sufficient second? there is a sufficient second. the clerk will call the roll. vote: the presiding officer: are will any senators in the chairman per wishing to vote or wishing to change their vote? if not, on this vote, the yeas are 86 and the nays are 9. two-thirds of those voting for adoption having voted in the affirmative and the resolution is agreed to. [inaudible] the presiding officer: without objection. vote: the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent the senate proceed to a period of morning b
year which also provided much-needed relief funds for hurricane sandy victims. that was a bipartisan bill. it was supported by senate republicans and democrats alike. but the republicans in the house regrettably gutted the bill and sent back legislation that explicitly cut out wildfire relief. in that context, let me make one point absolutely clear. this is an emergency. some people have questioned the need for funding and have asked why we wouldn't limit dollars to just hurricane sandy saer kwras like the bill -- hurricane sandy areas. the short answer is it is the fiscally smart thing to do, the right thing to do, and the fair thing to do. this bill is an emergency appropriations bill for all national disasters, not just hurricane sandy. it is our best hope of seeing wildfire relief. i emphatically note that the colorado emergencies occurred before hurricane sandy and the west should not have to continue to wait. very few emergency supplemental bills pass congress. this bill is passing now, and it should include aid for colorado and other states across our country. we as americans,
is now every other year. this is a region of the united states -- sandy was a 900,000 mile wide storm. i had family commie from cleveland, they were feeling the winds of it as it was hitting. an area of the country that is easily home to one third of the entire population of the unite states. from washington d.c. all the way up to boston, massachusetts. think about that. when we talk about infrastructure and the power grid, local municipalities and services, transportation systems, coming down on amtrak this morning was probably the first week or two that we started seeing regular service. uninterrupted service on the new jersey transit and rail lines. because of the complete damage that was done. we have to look at those areas as well. this is a very passionate, i am sure you couldn't tell, to me. it is very passionate to us on the ground in new jersey. we certainly want to be partners. but we just want to get going. we are just waiting for someone over there to say, go. and here are some resources to help you go. that is where we stand on the jersey shore. that is where we stand in our

, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skipe, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
the first responders who did what they could at sandy hook elementary. i was called to respond to the bombing of the federal building in oklahoma city. i spent one month investigating that senseless attack that culminated in the death of 160 americans and 19 children under the age of six. i was never the same. it is likely that the victims and survivors from newton will never be the same. do not forget the first responders. they need your help. today, we have a choice. we can maintain the status quo by putting our faith in gunfighters, the good guy we hope will prevail over the bad guy with a gunman, or we remove the obstacles that challenge our crime fighters from preventing them from ever getting a gun in the first place. people who sell guns and encourage you to place your faith in the gunfighters. this is not surprising. the fact that you can work as a fire arm without pausing a criminal background check is a flaw so large that it makes many gun laws meaningless and it distorts the fundamental effect the best of atf and every police department in the nation. as a crime figh

together around hurricane sandy. we've seen that in the new york, new jersey, connecticut area. ways in which this country is now ready for a conversation on violence and gun control based on what happened in newtown, connecticut, and of course when the president made his remarks about newtown he not only included newtown, but he also included the streets of chicago and so there is, there are these different packets of hope, even in the midst of difficulty that a number of our students at howard university and other people that i work with are latching on to at this time. >> i would also say that one of the things that we are learning is what we would need to do as a country in the face of natural societal resistance to change and that there is, there are hard lessons to be learned about how to lead in times of polarization which are different than in times when we, when the country is more naturally coming together and so those require different leadership skills, different spiritual skills, different levels of truth telling. >> i wanted to pick up on something that you said, profes
